I am sure you will go on to do amazing things, and those engineers who will get to work with you are quite fortunate indeed!

Your kind thoughts by themselves are appreciated my friend.

Tough decision to make. I _might_ be able to make it to DjangoCon this year. I know I _can_ make it to PyCon (it's driving distance) - but if I go to PyCon, it reduces my chance of going to DjangoCon. But I'd be bummed if I skipped PyCon but then missed DjangoCon. Hmmmm

Sorry, didn't catch that you were talking about Windows systems - never mind.

Are you talking about human-using systems or are you including embedded systems? If the latter, I'm guessing it's a very significant percentage.

There's also a video floating around somewhere (yea, I know that doesn't help much) that is a live demonstration. I'll see if I've got the link saved. I don't think it was specifically a Django app, but it did demonstrate how to use a container as a dev environment.

This is the model I'm playing with: It's still in the prototyping / experimentation phase for us, and we're still learning, but we haven't hit any real show-stoppers yet.

I've completely switched to VS Code - the remoting features (both ssh and docker) have made it well-worth the learning curve for me.

Well.... there was a time when the drinking age in the US was 18 in most states as well (pre-1984) - and yes, the expectations were the same.

Cool! Didn't know that. I learned about it in the admin docs about ModelAdmin.list_display.

TIL Python: You can also use functions as dictionary keys. (Also fits into the category of "I have no current-known use for this", but also interesting.) def f(x): print(x) d = {f: "whatever"} print(d) {<function f at 0x7f33b14f9c20>: "whatever"}

TIL Python: You can add attributes to functions. I don't have any use-cases for needing to do this, but it is interesting: def f(x): print(x) f.z = "abcde" (I've read some of the mailing list archives to get the history and I can understand some of the intent behind it.)

Made time today to listen to it. Very enjoyable! As someone who has only worked for large companies (smallest had 25,000 employees) - and definitely not in "Tech" and not start-ups, I definitely have had different experiences - I always like hearing about others' stories.

We're currently working on an extension of a timesheet system - where the timesheet may need to be approved by multiple different people under different circumstances. We looked at Django-fsm for this and decided it wasn't the right fit for us.

AKA things I probably should have heard 20 years ago. (Sorry, haven't listened to it yet - but I will!)

Sorry, not following you here. Is there a tweet-sized example that might make this more clear as a "for instance"?

Either BIOS setup, or, some machines let you press F2 or F12 or Esc early in the boot process to bring up a boot menu. (Sorry, I don't know anything specifically about Lenovo laptops.) But yes, you're looking for some entry that lets you select the boot device.
